Nook HD & HD+ get big upgrade

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, May 14, 2013

The Nook HD from Barnes & Noble gets a big upgrade.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  The Nook HD and HD+ tablets have boasted great screens and family friendly features from the start.   Now, with the addition of the Google Play store and other Google software like the Chrome browser,  they become even more of a winning proposition.   Nook’s VP and General Manager for Emerging and Digital Content Jonathan Shar…

“Google Play adds over 700 thousand Android apps and games to our already thousands of tailor made apps for Nook HD and HD+ giving our customers even more to explore and enjoy.  And on top of that an already extensive catalog of reading content, movies and much more on Nook HD and HD+.”

Pricing typically starts at about two hundred dollars.  The devices have expandable storage and let you set them up for different family members complete with parental controls.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
